gifted in piano, where his fingers felt at home dancing across the keys, while composing original

He inspired in his family the value of generosity, kindness and having a brilliant sense of humor.
John's laughter and jokes will be remembered by his three children, Andrew John Rollwitz,
Geoffrey David Rollwitz and Emily Elizabeth Rollwitz, and his partner, Tiffany Renea White.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
